Be kind to others and yourself, this will put you in a better mood to want to succeed. This is particularly important when you reach a hurdle and stumble. But you just need to pick yourself up and try again.
One way to motivate yourself is by writing daily affirmations or journal entries. By reminding yourself of what you are grateful for, it really can change your perspective on everything and shift your focus. Affirmations can be as simple as you are grateful to have a roof over your head and food on your plate.
Mix it up
Being too repetitive can get boring and tedious so mix up your routine to keep things interesting. When you exercise, you should not always do the exact same workout, you will soon get bored and give up. Instead, keep your workouts varied by incorporating different exercises or workout with a friend.
Being in a tidy area whether this be your room or desk at work, can also clear your mind allowing more of a focus on the things that really matter. Take time to tidy up after yourself and create a space where you feel motivated.
To do list
Write a todo list that includes everything you are wanting to achieve, these can be big or small goals. However, try not to add too much to the list as this can be overwhelming and difficult to know where to start. If you have several tasks but that link into one, why not create a mindmap.
Often taking short breaks throughout the day can help you stay on top and feel motivated. You will feel more energised and will probably get more done.
Exercising does not only have benefits physically, but also mentally. Try to incorporate exercise into your daily routine, this could be a short walk or exercise class. Exercise also helps to reduce stress and tension.
Even just meditating for two minutes a day can help you refocus yourself and release inner tensions. Sit down, close your eyes and relax.
Being out in nature helps to clear the mind and is great for your health. Incorporating being out in nature into your daily routine will help boost your motivation. This could be as simple as sitting in your garden or walking around your local park.
